    CROSSING THE BORDER

    PARK ENTRANCE REGULATIONS- KENYA:

    Unfortunately, due to trade barriers that exist between Kenya and Tanzania, all vehicles made for safari(our Landcruiser Hard Top with pop-up roof) are supposed to be used in the same country registered. Meaning, not any Tanzanian registered tour vehicle is allowed into the Masai Mara and Samburu National Reserve. PLEASE CONSULT GLADIOLA ADVENTURE WHEN PLANNING TO ENTER AFOREMENTIONED NATIONAL PARKS IN KENYA, PROVIDED IT IS SELF DRIVE.

    BORDER CROSSING FEE AND COMESA INSURANCE

    Driving the Toyota Land Cruisers in Tanzania

    NAVIGATION:

    For navigational needs on your self-drive, we recommend installing Maps.me on your smartphone before you travel -it is a free app. Download the Tanzania maps and enjoy driving with GPS offline. You can find almost every lodge and campsite plotted on the Maps.me app.

     

    IN CASE OF BREAKDOWN OR ACCIDENT.

    Please contact Gladiola Adventure offices immediately. Take pictures of the damaged vehicle and share them with us so we can process a police report. In case of an incident involving one or more vehicle(s), details of these vehicle(s) and their driver(s) should be identified and reported, such as the driver’s ID, telephone number, number plate, and insurance registration number.

    For minor issues with the car, on your call, we will direct you to the nearest mechanic workshop in one of our network of workshops in Tanzania. In case a car cannot be fixed within 24 hours, a replacement car from Arusha will be delivered to you so you can continue your journey.

     

    Please always contact Gladiola Adventure first. Our phone (+255 754 409 437) number is available 24h/day, we will try to solve the problem to the best of our ability.

    Refer to our terms and conditions, published on this website, for more information.

    HOW TO DEAL WITH TRAFFIC POLICE IN TANZANIA

    Always curious and alert are traffic police in Tanzania. Expect a pull over more than twice or with every other three traffic police you spot; always on their white-colored matching out-fits. They will ask for your driving license; lucky you, any valid license from your country of residence is acceptable here in Tanzania. They also will check if the car is insured, the condition of the tires, and the required rescue tools, fire extinguisher, reflectors triangles, and first aid kit – all of which are taken care of when renting a car from Gladiola Adventure. Surprisingly enough, sometimes, you will be pulled over and end up having a friendly chit-chat with an officer; not all pullovers are because of anything related to the law, but rather a good exercise on the few Swahili words you picked up.

    There is nothing to accuse you of provided that you did not break the law (speeding, dangerous overtaking, etc.). In case committed an offense, you will receive a fine that payable via mobile money and bank deposit. If you receive a fine, please keep the ticket and call the Gladiola Adventure office. We will make the payment for you, which will save you a lot of time, and then you can refund us in cash upon car hand over. However please avoid speeding, dangerous overtaking etc. to preserve the Self Driver’s image and our company. Keep the self driving business from being banned by the Government, drive responsively.

Meaning, not any Tanzanian registered tour vehicle is allowed into the Masai Mara and Samburu National Reserve. PLEASE CONSULT GLADIOLA ADVENTURE WHEN PLANNING TO ENTER AFOREMENTIONED NATIONAL PARKS IN KENYA, PROVIDED IT IS SELF DRIVE.

      Driving the Toyota Land Cruiser in Tanzania

      NAVIGATION:

      For navigational needs on your self-drive, we recommend installing Maps.me on your smartphone before you travel -it is a free app. Download the Tanzania maps and enjoy driving with GPS offline. You can find almost every lodge and campsite plotted on the Maps.me app.

       

      IN CASE OF BREAKDOWN OR ACCIDENT.

      Please contact Gladiola Adventure offices immediately. Take pictures of the damaged vehicle and share them with us so we can process a police report.

      HOW TO DEAL WITH TRAFFIC POLICE IN TANZANIA

      Always curious and alert are traffic police in Tanzania. Expect a pull over more than twice or with every other three traffic police you spot; always on their white-colored matching out-fits. They will ask for your driving license; lucky you, any valid license from your country of residence is acceptable here in Tanzania. They also will check if the car is insured, the condition of the tires, and the required rescue tools, fire extinguisher, reflectors triangles, and first aid kit – all of which are taken care of when renting a car from Gladiola Adventure. Surprisingly enough, sometimes, you will be pulled over and end up having a friendly chit-chat with an officer; not all pullovers are because of anything related to the law, but rather a good exercise on the few Swahili words you picked up.

      There is nothing to accuse you of provided that you did not break the law (speeding, dangerous overtaking, etc.). In case committed an offense, you will receive a fine that payable via mobile money and bank deposit. If you receive a fine, please keep the ticket and call the Gladiola Adventure office. We will make the payment for you, which will save you a lot of time, and then you can refund us in cash upon car hand over. However please avoid speeding, dangerous overtaking etc. to preserve the Self Driver’s image and our company. Keep the self driving business from being banned by the Government, drive responsively.
